    I've had that same thing. Sometimes I look at the pics and I love it, other times I hate it. Oh, and I have wedding dress nightmares - where the alterations lady royally f's it up.

    Nope, we're giving them out at the resort. OUr guests are from all over so it's easier for us that way.

    I leave 3 weeks from today. That just blows my mind. We've been engaged forever, and I've always had the "wedding is so far away" feeling. And I still do, only now the wedding isn't far away at all!!!

      Thanks girls for the dress comments. I've been working on my welcome booklets for 2 days now and the end is in sight. I think i went a little overboard it's more of a book than a booklet. Think i'm gonna have to consolidate it a little bit better.

        I have been feeling the same way Tara!

        Danielle,
        This is what we used for our welcome letter to the guests. We did a brochure from my favorite....you guessed it....Vistaprint.com

        Here's the outside....

        Click the image to open in full size.

        The outside cover says welcome to the wedding, outside/back middle has a place where people can write down room numbers, and the other flap is a note from us thanking them for coming.


        Here's the inside....


        Click the image to open in full size.

        The inside flap has a map of where we are located, the middle section has the wedding day timeline, and the other flap has misc. info and tips on PV and things they should know.

        We are going to put these in their OOT bags which will all be assembled when we get there.

            Here's a pic of the pre-wedding that I printed on vellum paper and cut down and pasted to lavender paper.

                    Well I am at work right now doing the night shift with my Mom. Hopefully I will have the internet up and running again later today!

                    I got the cake topper from ebay. It will look great on the cake if we end up having the beach reception since it won't start until 6:30-ish.

                    My Mom has started making my TTD dress, and it started off with the intent to make it look like my actual wedding dress, but now it is going to be totally different. I can't wait for it to be done.

                    Danielle - You look great in your dress. I am so glad to see pics of it. There were a few times that I have had similar thoughts, but then as soon as I try it on or start looking at other dresses, I remember why I love it so much.

                    I got our Hepatitis vaccines the other day, and I gave them to all of us. Yup, that's right....I even poked myself. My Mom is a nurse too and doesn't think she could poke herself. I was pretty impressed with myself, as it didn't hurt at all!!! LMAO!!!

                    Everyone has great welcome letters. I still have to finish our welcome books, but I am waiting for a few more pics, and making sure that there are no more surprise guests coming. I just found out that if my Aunt & Uncles trip to Mexico falls through, they are coming to the wedding.

                      Thanks for the compliments on the brochure! I have been told several times the past few weeks that I am very detail oriented. My MOH asked me yesterday after I told her I want us to "Wig-Out" for my Bach party; She was like, "Where do you come up with all of this stuff??" I told her - Oh my friends on BDW! We were on the phone and I swear, I could hear her shaking her head! LOL!

                      Okay - so I go tomorrow to pick up my dress. I am SO EXCITED!! It will be the first time I've had it on where it actually fits. I am going to try to get some pics with my old camera so FI doesn't see it. If all goes well, I'll be dropping the bag in the mail to Tara.

                      I plan on packing OOT bag stuff this weekend and dying my hair. FI and I went to the video store last night and I rented "Made of Honor" to get me a little in the mood! haha!

                      Erica - I could not give myself a shot! You are brave!

                      Jocelyn, I love the purple on your letter.

                      OKAY - I forgot to tell you, one of my BM's told me that she went to someone's house and they had this basket with towels in it and it had all of these starfish on it. She said they were white but had little rhinestones all over them! Of course I fell in love with the idea so now I think I am going to accessorize all of my baskets for my AHR with these lovely starfish that I can glue little rhinestone thingeys on. Doesn't that sound great??
